Coming clean about greed

“But when her owners saw that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace before the authorities” (Acts 16:19).  I find it easy to criticize the owners money- driven desire to seize Paul and Silas. It’s easy to label them as greedy. I find it far more difficult to take a look at my own heart and my own actions when it comes to the Good News of Jesus challenging the economic system in which I have lived comfortably all of my life. Lord, help me look into my heart and recognize, own, and repent of  any greed I find.
